To brew a good cuppa is pretty easy - it is all in how you prepare it. The following guidelines are to help you get the best possible taste and enjoyment out of our tea on offer.
Water - First start with fresh great tasting cold water. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Do not let your water boil for an extended period of time because this draws out of oxygen, which is necessary for the flavour extraction. The Depending on how strong you prefer your perfect cup of tea use approximately 1 teaspoons of tea per 250ml of water.
Temperature - Using the correct water temperature is of equal importance. Please note that only black teas, fruit blends, rooibos and herbal infusions are brewed with boiling water. It is of vital importance to remember not to use boiling water for oolong, green and white teas. After bringing the water to a rolling boil you have to let it cool down to the desired temperature.
Time - What turns most people away from tea is it being simply an over drawn. To avoid a bitter and unpleasant taste, never allow your tea to steep beyond the time as recommended on the brew card or in the instruction on the box. For a stronger cup of tea, add more tea rather than increasing the steeping time.
